On the way - a sermon and liturgy for Easter 5

This week we are praying for Somalia and Djibouti in the ecumenical prayer cycle. You can find the liturgy and my sermon here.
It is Holy Week this week for Christians who follow the Julian calendar and yet Christians who follow the Gregorian calendar have been singing alleluia and saying "Christ is risen" for over a month. This made me realise once more how deeply resurrection and bearing witness to it have to be rooted in the passion and in the suffering of the world.
